an entertainment tt the hospital. Being un- 
familiar With the city and Its Institutions, 
be did not know that hie act wai to be given 
at tbe almshouse — furthermore, In the Insane 

After ascending three flights of stair* the 
Impersonator was ushered Into a large room, 
capable of seating about eight hundred. The 

deep Interest, this Insane one at once be- 
gan to laugh and applaud, continuing to 
do so all through the serious speech of the 
character. A great many remarks were made, 
but which Daniels failed to grasp, being too 
nervous and anxious to get through his un- 
comfortable turn. 
The character of "Dr. Jekyll" failed to re- 

portals of the place, where bis entertainment 
bad been more of a penance than a pleasure. 

while waiting to board a train for tbe neat 
show place, a member of a company was 
much amused at tbe advice given by one of 
those slot weighing machines found on so 
many public platforms. The "blt-or-mlee" 


A company of amateurs, In a Western city, 
recently made a production of "Borneo and 
Juliet" for tbe benefit of a local Institution. 
Beald&i being a ridiculously crude presenta- 
tion, the musical setting of the play was most 
incongruous. Tbe leader of tbe local or- 
chestra, whose purpose was to make bis part 
of tbe programme a credit to himself, con- 
cluded that to do ao be ahould use popular 
music, with whlcb the townspeople were fa- 
miliar. The consequence was that during 
tbe famous balcony scene the band played 
"I'd Leave My Happy 
Home for Tou-oo-oo," 
In the chorus of whlcb 
tbe gallery joined wttb 
whistle and voice. 

Later, during the 
scene where "Tybalt" 
stabs "Mercutlo," the 
act was committed to 
the lively tune of 
"Johnny, Get Tour 
Gun." "Go 'Way Back 
an' Sit Down" was tbe 
incidental music that 
accompanied "Borneo's" 
killing of "Paris," while <£7 . 

tbe death scene In 
tbe tomb waa burrled 
through to tbe strains 
of "A Hot Time la Old 
Town Tonight." 


Tom McKenna relate) 
the two following anec- 
dotes. Tbe services .of 
a general porter being 
needed on board tbe car 
In which Ai. G. Field, 
the wealthy and suc- 
cessful minstrel mana- 
ger travels, a "want" 
advertisement was in- 
serted In the Columbus, 
Ohio, papers. Tbe drat 
applicant, a bright, in- 
telligent colored man, 
was engaged for the po- 

He waa like many of 
bla race, who, having a 
small amount of au- 
thority, gradually as- 
sume more, often to the 
amuiement and some- 
times to tbe annoyance 
of those among whom 
bis dutlea lay. This 
porter, after becoming 
familiar with hla rou- 
tine of work, began to assume a superiority 
over other employes, and even to Issue occa- 
sional orders among the members. His as- 
sumption of dignity was, in fact, greater 
than that of the aenlor member of the firm. 

One morning, aa tbe genial manager was 
about to leave tbe car to keep an appoint- 
ment with some friends, he discovered that 
he bad forgotten bla pocket book. Rushing 
back through the car to hie stateroom, he 
excla'med : 

"Heavens I but I came near starting up 
town without a cent!" 

The porter, who was cleaning windows, 
Leard the remark. With amualng familiarity 
this Individual exclaimed : 

"Well, A!., I can lend you fifteen cents." 

In a thriving town of the Northwest, where 
the AI. G. Field Minstrel Company played 
an engagement, the theatre bad been built by 
a wealthy German resident of tbe place, at 
the cost of 1100,000. Aa tbe property (ailed 
to pay (or tbe Investment, tt fell Into the 
hands of a receiver, much to tbe disgust of 
the German. 

After the doors were opened upon the last 
annual date ot the company there, Mr. Field 
waa assisting tbe buslneas manager during 
the rush hour by taking tickets at tbe front 
door. An elderly gentleman slipped by with- 
out proffering the required coupon. Mr. Field 
etepped np to him, saying : 

"Ton forgot to give up 'your ticket. Sir." 

"Ob, no," was tbe reply, "dot's all right! 
I'm dot sucker vol btlt die blaee." 


Walter Daniels, noted In tbe vaudeville 
profession aa an "Impersonator of noted 
actors," relates tbe following : 

After playing tbe Keith circuit In Phila- 
delphia, Daniels, baring an open week, en- 
tertained some of tbe clubs. At tbe Colombia 
be met a gentleman who asked blm to give 

be expressed hla opinion of tbe man from 
whom be bad bought It In no very compli- 
mentary tones. 

"You thought tt was going to be sorb a 
big bonania," commented a friend of the 

"Yea, and so It li," wai his reply. 

"I don't see bow you make that out," said 
tbe otner. 

"That's becauss yon don't understand the 
correct definition of tbe word," ssld the man- 

"And what Is It)" asked tbe friend. 

"A bonanss," said Haverly, In deeply dis- 
gusted tones, "la a hole In tbe ground, sold 
to a aucker by a durned slick liar," 


stage waa a email platform, arranged with 
screens on each aide for dressing noma. 

With no Idea ot entertaining Insane audi- 
tors, Daniel bad decided to give bis famous 
impersonation of Wilton Lackaye aa "Sven- 
gall," Richard Mansfield aa "Dr. Jekyll and 
Mr. Hyde," and Joseph Jefferson aa "Caleb 
Plummer" — these characters being made up 
In full view of tbe audience. 

When tbe actor realised that bla audience 
consisted of those suffering from different de- 
grees of mental trouble, be confessed himself 
very much frightened, not being cure ot the 
reception of bis Impersonations, wblcb were 
of a character calculated to Inspire horror 
more than amusement 

After annonneing what be would give for 
their entertainment, he proceeded to make 
up as "Srengsll." Contrary to tbe custom 
of sane audience's, wblcb was to watch, with 

celve any recognition, and the audience re- 
mained quiet, but when "Hyde's" hideous 
face was produced it was received with 
cheers and applause. There were a few 
blood curdling ecreama that the actor did not 
care to hear repeated, some strange cries, 
msny laughs, of a sort tbst normal people 
hate to listen to. One voice shonted : 

"We'll take care of you, all right 1" a kind- 
ness tbe actor failed to appreciate. 

In Imitation of Esra Kendall, Daniels then 
told some funny stories, wblcb, however, 
failed In gettlag a laugb except from the 
piano player, tbe keepers, and a few visitors. 

One elderly female, In the front row, re- 
peated msny times over: 

"Poor boy — It'e • sin — It's a sin— he should 
bave proper treatment with tbe rest of us." 

Needless to say K waa wttb a greatly re- 
lieved mind that Daniels passed from tbe 

advice in bla case waa a "miss" on this oc- 
casion. It read : 

"You are In very bad company, and tbe 
sooner you make a change tbe better," 

As tbe setor bad almoat finished one of bla 
most successful seasons, with a very good 
company, naturally, tbe advice was not taken. 


The late Jack Haver!/ made very many 
bad mine Investments wttb tbe hundreds of 
thousands of dollars made In minstrelsy. He 
was the maker of a very trite remark In re- 
gard to the definition of a "bonania," wblcb 
baa been accredited to more than one prom- 
inent man, but which waa original with tbe 
most successful of minstrel managers In all 
tbe world, thong b latterly tbe unluckleit. 

When disappointed In tbe. output of a Colo- 
rado mine, for wblcb be bad paid an enor- 
mous sum, and wblcb proved a flat failure, 

When my hair was done up I went Into 
Rachel's room. There was snother girl dress- 
ing there, but Rachel did not Introduce me. 
I beard later that they 
wore not on speaking 
terms. The girl's name 
waa Mlae Fay. Rachel 
seated me In a chair 
and asked for my 
"liner." I bad no Idea 
what sbe meant, so she 
began rumaglng among 
my things until abs 
found my blsck pencil, 
which she toased aside 
scornfully. "That'll 
never do," she cried, 
"I'll borrow some from 
one of tbe boys." She 
wont and knocked at 
one of tbe rooma occu- 
pied by tbe actors. 

During Bacbel's ab- 
sence Mlas Fay went on 
making up. Every now 
and than sbo would 
stop laboring over ber 
tare to execute a few 
dancing steps , around 
tbe room or to throw a 
handspring. Sbe was 
an acrobatic dancing 
aoubrette. Presently 
Ilacbel returned. Sbe 
Installed me at her 
dresaer and, after cold 
creaming my face, the 
began drawing lines on 
It wttb' various colored 
grease paints. When- 
ever she drew a line 
she stood off to see tbe 
effect. Sometimes abs 
eraaed It and drew one 
In another place, and 
then rubbed tbem in 
with ber fingers until I 
began to feel like a 
crayon portrait. 

"This must be a lot of 
trouble for you, Mlaa 
Mllford," I sputtered. 
"Not at all," aho said, "I love to make 
people up," 

Tbe lines all on, she showered my face 
with powder until 1 looked like a clown. 
Then sbe took a little bruah and swept nearly 
every trace of It off. Next abe put on my 
rouge, after whlcb sbe powdered my hair, 
snd when I looked In the glaaa I waa a very 
nice looking old lady of forty-five or fifty. 
All tbe time Rachel was trying experiments 
with my face, Miss Fey, still Ignoring us, 
proceeded to "make up" ber eyes. First she 
held a spoon filled with black cosmetic over 
the gas jet. When It was melted to the con- 
sistency of a thick soup, sbe scooped It up 
on a pointed stick, and applied It to ber 
lashes In sucb a way that when It cooled It 
left a large lump of cosmetic at the end of 
each lasb, and made It look aa It she bad 
strung black beads around her eyes. While 
abe decorated ber right eye sbe etretched 
down tbe left corner of ber lower lip, and 
vtee vena, as If to balance ber face, for, of 
course, any movement of tbe eye lid would 
cause tbe hot cosmetic to splash down on her 
cbeek and ruin her make up. I made up my 
mind to do my eyes like this the first chance 
I bad. Bacbel's eyes were not done tbat 
way at all. She had scarcely any cosmetic . 
on tbe laahea, and the lids were just smudged 
wltb dark blue. — Confciiion* of a 8tao»

Itself to their view, and they resolved tit 
enter the profession. They finally obtained 
an engagement at the old Dime Museum, on 
Chatham Boiiarc,. where they appeared from 
early morning until midnight, receiving 
throu dollars a week each. Toe engagement: 
gave them an opportunity for practice, and 
to feel their way. ' Then followed an engage- 
ment at the old New York Museum, oh the 
Itowcry, where the management thought 
them worth «7.00 per week each. Here 
Ihey appeared thirty-six times each day, 
The supply of black faced comedians proving 
rather a glut on the market, they deter- 
mined to get 'up anew ncti and they accord- 
ingly got together what they called an Irish 
Jong and daneo knockabout sketch, and as 
rlsh comedians they appeared In the vari- 
ous variety theatres for three years. Then 
It' was that they decided to transform them- 
selves Into Dutch comedians, r.nd they cluntc 
to this stylo of work ever since, winning 
(or themselves fame and fortune. Early lu

28, they bioUght. out for the season of 'U't- 
l»7 a new B':t, which they culled "Tho Ger- 
man Spnators at Buseball." The setting for 
this' set was more elaborate than any of 
the preceding offerings of these comeainnB. 
In the background there was seen A grand 
eland.' crowded with spectators.. In front 
of th(s scene was' a seven foot high I board 
fence, In front of which' was un old limbless 
tree, somewhat higher that (he fence. When 
the act oyoued, Weber and Fields were, seen 
perched In this tree, so, that they wero able 
lu look over tho fence into the bull- ground. 
The- comedians themselves were dressed tin

Lixa Park . (Thompson & Dundy, owners!. 
— This vast pleasure ground has almost 
doubled ' In size. This great resort, which 
entertained millions last Summer, has added 
attractions on an even more magnificent 
scale that those which were. Inst year con- 
sidered marvels of their kind.: The gPhit 
Durbar pageant, the plunging elephants and 
ihe burning of nn entire city block are nil 
three added features that *bow the genlu* 
of the showman, ond the plan of the Durbar 
spectacle Is on a scale of great lavlshness. 
A great' fortune has been spent lu providing 
for these three attractions alone, ond sixteen 
acres ot land hnvc been added to the wide 
urea that Luna Park occupied In 1003, Jnst 
to accommodate the Durbar and the herd 
ot sixty elephants which take, part In tlie 
dazzling procession. Of the thousunds who 
have visited Luna Park none departed with 
the impression that the advance notices of 
these spectacles, despite the glowing ad- 
jectives with which they were described, 
were not lived np to. To complete tb«j 
Durbar pageant lhere are three hundred 
natives of India, dressed 'n the snme 
gain raiments they wore In the Durbar 
In the city Of the moguls. The plunging 
elephant*, that should prove uu unending 
source of delight to ihe youug, nnd 
amazement lo the old, throughout the 
Hummer, made . their first slide last 
week before a large gathering. The feat 
of teaching these huge animals to com- 
placently slide down a precipitous shoot the 
chutes into a great tank of water, was one 
of the greatest ever undertaken by an ani- 
mal trainer. Then there I* the Naval Spec- 
liitorinin, with its stirring sea fights and 
I'oinbardnit'iit* of fortresses, the great circus 
in mid air, wbtcb never censes lu Its round 
of entertainment, ; the Hanging (iardeus o( 
Babylon, where 70,000 inn rest In the shade : 
the Japanese Village, and a score of other 
features Hint are ail new, besides the Trip 
lo the Moon, Twenty Thousand Leagues Un- 
der the Sea, nnd many more that met with 
unnroval. The circus rings nre constructed 
In tlie centre of the enclosure, over the lake.

features. Ring 1 : Louise De Mott, Bonner,

HorfnKi'i: Brothers' News. — The opening 
day was set for May 7, and heavily billed 
for Augusta, Okie. The tents were erected 
on the Mteen about one fourth of n mile Irani 
the Winter quarters, near a lively barn 
owned by the show managers. Everything 
was In readiness for the commencing outside 
performance, and a big crowd rilled every 
business place in town, hesitating to come 
over and Join the gathering people on the 
show grounds on account of ominous indi- 
cations of a hurricane looming up In the 
Northeast. Many predicted that it would 
pass away to the North, but they were mis- 
taken. Another black cloud formed In the 
West, and as they cume together orders were 
given to pull down. '1 lie canvas was quickly 
(lacked on wagons and rolled into the .burn, 
and all other proiierty made safe, when tbe 
storm burst on the town with tierce wind 
aud pelting ruin, followed quickly by one 
of the worst ball stcrms ever seen In this 
part of the territory. Windows were broken 
by die force of the descending hall, ami Hit 
ground soon became white with the frozen 
pellets. The storm ceased at fifteen minutes 
to ten o' in the evening, and the pleas- 
ure seekers went iiome In a polar atmos- 
phere Illuminated by fitful moonlight, beam- 
ing Intermittently from between the racing 
clouds. At Carmen, one nnd one-half miles 
from Winter qua net's, Monduy. May 0, Hie 
real ■ opening was made, to packed tents, 
under a typical circus sky. and thd season 
from then on has been everything that could 
lie desired. .1. It. Bonhear made m few days'

Napier strove hard, up to f till time, to stop 
Marshall, and was fortunate to escape m 
well. Marco held fourth place. Age, we 
tldnk, tells upon our esteemed old friend, 
Mr. Delmnr, in a long, taxing struggle like 
this. Janrrwskl clung to second place, arid 
slightly widened the gap between hi m«elf and 
Lasker, with whom afMiltar hart' the en- 
viable distinction of dividing honors, thanks 
to highly Ingenious end game tactics. Hodges' 
victory was due to fide chess, nnd No. 7 was 
evenly contested. Fox played splendidly, 
though technically winning by the time rule.

An Instance where a clever piece of acting 
was the cause ot the summary dismissal of 
an actor's services Is told of a member of 
Richard Mansfield's "Richard III" company. 
The company had assembled for rehearsal 
and the actor-manager had not yet appeared 
on the scene. Dnrlng the wait a young actor, 
whose powers of mimicry were unusual, 
amused the few who stood near him with 
a few lines of the star's part, cleverly bur- 
lesquing that dignified personage. Be was 
ending with the well known Mansfletdlsn 
bow, when the grace of It was Interrupted 
by the resonant tones of the star as he was 
approaching the box entrance to the stage, 
by way of the side aisles, his figure yet In- 

"Clever — exceedingly clever," exclaimed 
the star, "so cleverly acted that more than 
one of us would be superfluous In the com- 


In companies where a large force of extra 
people are required, It Is necessary to keep 
' a record of the work of this force, and to 
assign each of them a number, so that when 
reporting for duty each nlgbt the assistant 
stage manager may check them oil the list 

About two hundred supernumeraries were 
employed In Wright Lorlmer's production of 
"The Shepherd King," and one night during 
thla checking off process It was discovered 
that while Mr. Lorlmer was only playing 
"King David," one of the extra Nubians 
(from Eighth Avenue) bad some right to the 

In the temporary absence of the assistant 
stage manager one of the members of the 
company was asked to replace him In check- 
ing the extras as they passed the stage door, 
one of whom belonged to the Nubian group. 

"What's your number?" asked the assist- 

"Didn't git none ylt, boss," replied the 
darkey, "but man name's David, Sub." 

"What's your other name 1" was the next 
question asked. 

"King, Sub," was the 

"Ah, David King," . 
said the assistant, look- 
ing down the list for 
the name. 

"No, Sub," objected 
the darkey, "King Da- 
vid, 8uh." And It was 
afterwards found that 
this was the name by 
which he waa known. 

Wright Lorlmer re- 
lates sn amusing story 
ot his reception at the 
home of an English friend, who resides In 
one of London's suburbs. 

"I was making an unexpected call upon 
this friend," said Lorlmer. "When the ser- 
vant answered my ring t asked If Mr. Ar- 
butmart was In." 

"Master has gone out," was the reply. 

"Then I will see Mrs. Arbutmart— Is she 

"Missis has gone out too." 

'Well, I think I'll come in and warm my- 
self by the fire before going back to London." 

"You're most welcome to come In, Sir," 
said the servant, "but the Ore's gone out too, 


Leon Herrmann has condensed his two 
hour entertainment Into a vaudeville torn ot 
thirty minutes, and baa secured a year's 
booking on the different circuits. During the 
Summer season at Manhattan Beach he will 
give an entertainment every afternoon, In 
the pavilion, his performance being inter- 
spersed with music by a popular band. 

This well known prestldlgltateur relates 
two experiences In his clever manipulations 
that were not performed upon the stage. 

One happened during an engagement In 
New Orleans. With some friends, he visited 
the famous old French market, the mecca of 
all tourists to this Southern city. On the 
stand of one of the old market women was 
a pile of eggs — about four dozen. One of 
Mr. Berrmann's friends suggested hia Illus- 
trating his sleight of hand ability with the 
vendor's eggs, and, to amuse them, he ap- 
proached the white capped old person. 

"Row much are your eggs?" he asked. 

"Twenty-two cents • dosen this morning, 
Sir," was the reply. 

"Are they perfectly fresh r was the next 

"Indeed they are," Indignantly answered 
the old woman. 

"Well, let os see If you're right," said 
Herrmann, proceeding to break one of the 
eggs, and from within the shell of which he 
appeared to take a silver halt dollar. Put- 
ting it in the band of the woman, he reached 
for another egg, with which he performed 
the same trick, again presenting the prlxe 
to the owner ot the eggs, thus Indemnifying 
her for the possible loss of more than four 
dozen of them. 

Bavlng passed three of four stalls the 
party turned to see the old woman in the 
act of rapidly breaking up ber egg stock, 

of one of this gardener's cabbages. Tender- 
ing a shilling to the owner, the magician 
reached across the stand for a small cab- 
bage, which he cut In halve* with a sharp 
knife he bad taken from hla pocket Snugly 
embedded In the centre was the missing 
watch, which was drawn forth, to the as- 
tonishment of the owner of the vegetables, 
and the amusement of the party, who quickly 
realized that they had been witnessing one 
ot the clever tricks of their friend. After 
cutting Into another, and finding coin there- 
in, he said to tho gardener : 

••I will take half a dozen of your cab- 

tunste. At the suggestion of one ot the club 
members a tall atep ladder was brought In, 
and the magician waa persuaded to mount 
and pencil his autograph beside the "seven 
of hearts," which adorned the celling in 
proof of bis skill. 

Florence Sarto, a member of "The Little 
Outcast" company, recently overheard two 
countrymen Indulging In a unique discus- 
sion of herself. They were seated In .the: 
dining car, en route between Cincinnati and 
Chicago, when the actress entered and took' 
the next table. 

"I'll bet she b'longs to the troop that 
played 'Little Castout' In taown yestldy," 
said one ot the Boosters, 

"Nope," said the other, "I think she's the 
tight rope walker in the circus we saw the 
day before— 'relse shs did that Jugglln' scene 
you got so stuck on." 

A moment later the waiter entored w'th 
a portion of Miss Barto'a luncheon, which, 
consisted of a rum omelet, In a blue blase ot 
burning liquor. 

"By gum I" one of the men exclaimed, 
"none ot us wua right- -she's the firs eater 
we saw In one of the side shows." 
« f 

Tho dspper waiter lingers— 

What shall I drink tonight? 
I turn, with listless fingers, 

The wine list to the light ; 
And while I scan It, thinking 

That wine has lost Its charm, 
I dream once more ot drinking 

Sweet elder at the farm. 

From Orandad's ancient settle, 

Before the crackling blase, 
I watch the singing kettle — 

A merry tune it plays. 
There, when the corn was snapping, 

And apples siszed and steamed, 
With Grandad slyly napping, i 

My sweetest dreams were dreamed. 

The Winter wind, snow laden, 

Coaxed up the roaring flames, 
And there a rosy maiden 

Bat by and played me games ; 
There Love, who heard the clinking 

Of glasses, came and saw 
Two happy lovers drinking 

Sweet elder through a straw. 

Snug-snettered from the 
At Boreas we laughed, 
And quenched our thirst , 
In that cool amber 
That drink of Orandad's 
Pressed In the mill 
hard by, 
Bet no light head to 
Turned no bright 
speech awry. 

Stilled are the clinking glasses, 

Long vanished Is your smile, 
Oh rosiest ot lanes ; 

But still I dream, and while 
My gray mustache I'm dipping 

In wine without a flaw, 
I see your red lips sipping 

Sweet elder through a straw.

anxiously examining the shells, while around 
her was a group ot market people as deeply 
Interested as she. 

Mr. Herrmann performed a slmllsr trick 
in the old Montreal, Can., market place. 

"What time Is It 7" he asked of one of the 
party as they were passing a stall piled 
with vegetables. The gentleman reached for 
bis watch, and, to his dismay, found the 
pocket empty. 

"Heavens! my watch has been taken," he 

"Perhaps It Is not far away," said Berr- 
'I think It will be found In the heart 

Evidently the cupldlly ot the dull appear- 
ing Individual bad been aroused, for be re- 
plied : 

"They're not for rale, Sir." 

Upon the celling at the Bohemian Club, of 
Montreal, Is a souvenir of Berrmann's visit 
there. Among bis most difficult card tricks 
la that In which a guest selects a card and 
personally replaces It In the pack, which Is 
(hen thrown st the celling, All the cards 
drop to the- floor except the one selected, 
which sticks fsst to the celling. Herrmann 
sometimes falls to overcome the difficulties 
of this trick, but on this occasion was tor- 

It may not be generally known that the 
Government conducts an Institution for giv- 
ing pleasure to the blind. A room Is set 
opart for them at the Congressional Li- 
brary, and entertainments are given there. 
Etta Josselyn Qlflln is the official In charge, 
and In addition to these entertainments she 
takes parties of tho blind to the theatre each 
week, the tickets being contributed by the 

After Julia Marlowe's performance of "In- 
Rornar" Miss Qlflln took her blind guests up 
and Introduced them to the star. One old 
gentleman, after thanking Miss Marlowe for 
the pleasure she had given him, added: 

"And I want also to thank you for the 
pleasure I enjoyed In bearing your voice In 
'Everyman.' " 

Miss Qlflln, having heard of the Jealousies 
of theatrical favorites, was appalled and has- 
tened to check him. 

"This Is not Miss Mattblson, It I* Mis* 
Marlowe, Mr. Blank," she said, hurriedly. 
But Miss Marlowe stopped ber with a charm- 
ing smile, and warmly shook tbe old man's . 

"You have paid mo the prettiest compli- 
ment possible In mistaking my voice for such . 
s beautiful voles as Miss Mstthlsoa's," she 
said, In a tone so sunshiny and sincere tbst 
the last trace of embarrassment disappeared."

sub. tourney, w« can only say that the elab- 
orately arranged team matches at Cambridge 
Springs were carried out to the entire satis- 
faction of Professor Bice. This distinguished 
patron of the game, himself magUter inter 
maptAtroi. has now the flnal triumph of see- 
ing his Gambit, to which he has devoted so 
much time, labor and expense, emerge from 
the test engrossed among the good and play- 
able gambits. The fsct Is. It has been put 
through the double flery furnace of analyst* 
and actual play with a persistent energy to 
which no other new opening was ever sub- 
jected. The Attack Is now vindicated, and 
the Rica takes Its coveted place In 
chess literature; and, (or the present, holds 
the premier fascination for those who love a 
"heady light" for its own sake. 

There Is a consensus of opinion upon Mr. 
Marshall's performance. His career through 
this tourney — his display of fearlessness. 
depth, accompanied with brilliancy, an almost 
unerring Judgment of position, to a pitch never 
before attained u. such a field, — gives Frank 
J. Marshall the position of the world's cham- 
pion player. If any one thinks be can beat 
him single-handed, the Held Is open, let him 
try It. How many, think you, could display 
the self -possession of receiving such an un- 
mistakable (there Is snotber word) rebuff 
about the title "Champion of the World," snd 
so soon thereafter achieve what he did here? 
The French champion, no doubt, sees the In- 
utility of showing the sirs of a conqueror 
before be conquers; and what the German 
champion thinks of it, being cautious and 
self-possessed, probably no one will ever 
know. Marco, the Incarnation of good fel- 
lowship and Jollity, merited bis position, and 
we rejoice with him In attaining It For a 
man who has beeen out of chess so long, 
8ho waiter is a wonder. We defeat "Ifs;" but 
here Is a good one. If the glorious old Buss. 
could have faced the 1st half of the tourney 
ob gallantly as he did the 2d, ha would have 
ranked higher. Tbe editor of Deutsche Bchcah- 
eeituna (Scblechter) did not coma off quit* 
as well as was expected. The boy champion 
of Brooklyn baa made a moat promising 
start, and great things may be predicted for 
him. Presumably the English writers will 
express surprise that tbe champion of ths City 
C. C, crowned with so msny notable victories, 
did not stand higher. Probably the American 
champion does not aak any pity for bis mis- 
hap, and It Is equally prabable that be will 
never agree with the majority of Americans 
ss to the cause of bis disappointment. Well, 
well I One can not always win at chess. 


Cambridge Spring* Tournry. 


With the ever changing views of chess mas- 
ters about the openings ott which to pin their 
hopes ot success, this tourney presents tbe 
moat varied list. Tbls Is a point of much In- 
terest to tbe student who watches tbe devel- 
opment ot the game, and Is careful to uote 
and adopt tbe rising new ideas and discard 
tbe old ones found untenable. 

Ot tbesee changes two are here conspicu- 
ously to the front. The best masters have 
clearly come to tbe conviction that the "Ber- 
lin Defence" to the Buy Lopes Is not the 
only foil to that attack the German theorist* 
bavo so long snd almost dlctatorlally held. 
The present masters have decidedly turned 
to "Lowenthal's Defence," who held that by 
delaying K Kt to B 8 till after 3.. P to Q ft 
3, the Defence la much strengthened. A 
glanco through these gomes proves this. 

A second palpable change Is also visible. 
It Is now shown that Counter Gambits are 
not the Wlllothe-wlsps, so many have per- 
tlnac'ously, not to say contemptuously, held. 
We take pride In Baying that our own "Coun- 
ter-Gambit Tourney" was an Important leader 
In bringing forward this happy change. Real 
artists are finding out that courage, Ingenuity 
and perseverance point the road to outfoot 
dogged obBtlnacy, and are visible promoters 
of the Interest, popularity and spread of 
chess. The great variety of openings exhib- 
ited here would have given a shock to tbe 
stilted masters or Btaunton's time. Several 
of them were veritable slaves to "sound- 
ness, " which deadened the Imagination and 
placed an Incubus on tbe capacity for striking 
out on original and entertaining lines. It wss 
well that Morpby came when he did — the 
Avater of a new and happier dispensation.

The above Is a characteristic picture of 
Ernest Lamson, who has established himself 
as a successful star and author during th* 
past season. Applications for time have 
been so numerous for "Young Tobe Iloxle" 
tbat his manager, Ralph Plnkbsm, was 
tempted to put out a second company next 
season, but has Anally concluded to confine 
tbe play to on* company, In which Mr, Lam- 
son will star sgaln. Mr. Lamson I* now 
working on three plays, which be will have 
ready for production during next season. 
These consist of a pastoral comedy, a melo- 
drama and a farce comedy. Negotiations are 
now pending for the production of the latter 
after the hulldays.

ered board Mr. If. would gradually merge 
preconcel-ed slight advantages Into a link 
which fastened a piece Into such a po-

I would like to add a few words In refer- 
ence to a portion of a letter from W. C. 
Fields, which appears In Tub Clipper dated 
April 2. In the Ixmdon letter. The letter, 
your estimable London representative claims, 
is one written to O. K. Sato, and I take it 
was a personal one. Knowing Mr. Fields per- 
sonally, and associating with him and his 
wife a great deal while they were out here, 
and naturally knowing their minds on such 
matters as African fond, etc., I can only aay 
that 1 am quite certain that Mr. Fields was 
only Joklug with Mr. Sato, and that Mr. 
1'ieldB could not have approved ot tbe publi- 
cation of any part of bis private letter. For 
the benefit of some .of the performers who 
may be coming to Africa, I wish to save them 
from having a fright about tbelr engagement, 
and give them a few facta as to the cost of 
living out here. I have been out here fifteen 
months, and naturally know what I am talk- 
ing about. Most of tbe vaudeville performers 
who come out here, either take rooms and do 
their own cooking, or else atop at the Austra- 
lia Hotel, nnd some go to the Central — both 
hotels being very good na far as food Is con- 
cerned, and having nice, clean baths, with 
hot and cold water. They charge profes-

The prices here are not exorbitant, when tbe 
average salaries here are considered. Cloth'ng, 
hats, boots, etc., for Indies and gentlemen, 1 
allow are expensive, but then professionals 
can come prepared not to buy anything In 
this line. The beat kind ot watermelons ob- 
tainable In South Africa, can be purchased at 
the market here for Us. (Id., that Is about 
sixty some cents, and tbey are always cheaper 
In ('ape Town. Tbe fairly good hotels that 
cost £1 a day out here, wnlch Mr. Fields 
mentions, are the best and most expensive In 
the town. Africa Is quite a civilized coun- 
try, believe me, and I have heard few com- 
plaints of these first class hotels, even from 
tbe best people out here. As for the country 
being full of crooks, and people being In con- 
stant danger of being "hit on the brain case 
wltb a piece of hardware," this Is the first I 
have heard ot such a state of affairs. 

It Is hardly fair to tbe Empire and Tl- 
voll managements out here for these reports 
to get about In America and England, where 
The Clipper Is being read by possible Em- 
pire and Tlvoll performers. I can assure 
you Americans are very much In favor iu 
this country, that performers ire treated 
well by the various managements out here.

surely they could not expect things to be

during the opening week of tbe supplement- 
ary season was better than expected, and, If

said recently, "owns the Howard when he 
plays thee," is at tbe top of a long Hat of

St. I.onts.— The' past week found any 
amount of clever attractions, and the weuth- 
cr did Its best to kill them with copious 
showers. However, attendance was of fair 
r.verngft all alone; the line. St. Louis hua 
so many different offerings thnt tho weary 
seeker for amusement hardly knows which 
way to turn. Jt baa long had the reputa- 
tion of belnir a big Summer show town, uud 
1 tint, too, when the oi fronoo houses were 
alone open. And now, besides these, there 
are almost all of the down town theatres 
and tbo special offerings for tbe Exposition 
period, and. furthermore, the Exposition It- 
self, with its .forty-four theatres nu the Pike. 

Woui.n'8 Fair. — Tbe memory of the oldest 
Inhabitant does not run to such a spell of 
weather ns St. Louis has hud this Spring. 
It Is ns though the Kates were trying to 
•hurt the fair. The hard Winter was 11 seri- 
ous ' setback to' the couiplctlou of the' fair 
buildings, und April, of which so much' was 
hoped, brought little except suow and rain. 
May ' also had something like twenty-live 
rainy days to her credit, and June thus fat- 
lias brought a long - succession of terrlltc 
thunder storms. Meanwhile the public is 
seeing the fair from under umbrellas. ■ . It Is 
also interesting to note that the hardest 
rnlna came on snlurdiiys and legal holidays, 
when tlu< fair might naturally expect tre- 
mendous attendance. Decoration Day brought 
a downpour, and Missouri Day, June 3, was 
unique in the vigor uf the thunder showers. 
Tbe Pike is a big sufferer, of course, bat it 
Ik wonderful bow well patronised its ntti ac- 
tions have been. Roltalr'a "Creation" hiuI 
bis other attractions have closed each week 
to tne. good. Mnuuger Murphy, with, the 
Irish village, and Hole's lire lighters has 
kept both or his offerings paying. Akaun s 
Mysterious Asia Is a winner even now\ and 
Tohln'd cliff dwellers have always hod good 
patronage. Hagenbeck'B nnd the Tyrolean 
Alps are two more that the public have In- 
sisted on patronising. 

Olympic iP. Short, manager). — "A Coun- 
try Girl" was offered nt the Olympic week of 
May 80. Miss Deyo nppenrcd In the title 
role, and was extremely well received. The 
same company will present "The Itunawav 
Girl," "Ban Toy" and "The Gclsbn Girl," and 
will continue Its engagement Indefinitely. 

CMnu - It*. Short, manager). — Week of

IClralfy's Louisiana Purchase Spectacle saw 
fairly good attendance week of May 30. 
A special performance was given week of 
28, to Invited guests only, and the house 
was crowded with prominent people. Es- 
pecially notable were tbe prominent foreign 
ers present from the foreign commlss'ons at 
I he Exposition. Unfortunately 'Mr. Ktralfy 
was unable to obtain possession of the house 
as soon as be anticipated, and as a result 
the offering dragged a good deal at this, 
Its premier production. However, the man- 
agement announced from tbe Stage at the 
Introduction that the performance was only 
given to tbclr friends and was In tbe na- 
ture of n dress rehearsal, and the best of 
feeling prevailed. The "Dean of Spectacu- 
lar Productions" has never costumed a piece 
more brilliantly and effectively. The stage 
pictures and ballet effects will be remem- 
bered for many years to come. The leading 
people in this big cast are : Emsy Alton, 
Grace Belmont, Harriet Burt, Edith Cone, 
Fred Collins, Granville B. Lane, Flo Mardell,

local favorites in tbe cast, the leading people 
In which are given below. The offering 
made a distinctly good impression, and It 
seems ns though both this and Klralfv's of- 
fering ought to do well. In spectacular ef 
fecta It la excellent, and Is graced with many 
iirettv songs. It should be a success. Lam-

prises : All the attractions of the above firm 
are now off the road, the Western "Game 
Keeper" Co. closing last week, at Ashlaud, 
Wis. The tour was nei-cssarlly shortened 
owing to the Illness of Manager Fred Con- 
rad, who la at present confined In the hos- 
pital ut. Duluth. Minn., with a severe at- 
tack of erysipelas. Advice from that quarter 
states his rase to be niost serious. Row- 
land & Clifford presented their Illustrated 
dramatic musical recital at Kenosha. Wis.. 
June 2. under the management of David Sey- 
mour, and It was a most pronounced artistic 
success. Edwards Davis has been specially 
engaged to deliver the dramatic portion of 
the entertainment, assisted by stereoscopic 
and moving pictures. A tour of the Summer 
resorts. Cliaiaiinuas, etc.. has been booked 
for "Parsifal," and tbe demand for time Is 
greater than we can supply at present. En- 
gagements for "Over Niagara Falls" and 
"'the Secret Marriage" companies are pro- 
gressing rapidly. Among tbose recently en- 
gaged : Ernest Murray, Stanley Wilkes and 
Harold Waterman. 

— Notes from Belcher's Comedians: Our 
show Is doing line. We never worked so 
late In the season before, hut as the weather 
has remained cool we find we can make some 
raoiicy by so doing. We open our regular 
season Aug. 8. Hare a tine line of fairs 
booked. Will carry band and orchestra next 

— Notes from ltentfrow's Jolly Pm blind- 
ers: Capacity business Is the rule with this 
company. At Watervllle. Bangor and Calais 
we were packed to the doors at the openings 
on Monday. Our agent Is a bustler. We 
play Eostport week of June tl, then St. 
John, N. If. The date for closing has nut 
been announced as yet, and we may stay out 
all Summer. Onr show goes with a snap, 
and we give a continuous performance. Tim 
curtain does nut go down uutll the third act. 
then the orchestra gives one of Us descrip- 
tive overtures, which Is one of Its pleasant 
features nn the programme. 

— 1". P. Hlllman writes : "A baby boy wus 
born to ray wife May SB, and Die Utile fel- 
low already displays wonderful latent in 
emotional work. I shall return lu the Spouuer 
Co. In about two weeks, joining them in 
Phoenix. Ariz. I have been re-engaged to 
play a line of Juveniles and characters." 

— Mrs. Josephine Mart Inez Cone, mother 
■if Kate Claxton. died at her cottage at

nnd was with her mother at the tlms of her

bouse later. He presented clay M. Oreene's 
one act pity, called "For Love's Sweet Sake," 
which was given lor the first time at tbe 
Actors' Fund bene lit last Winter. Its scene 
Is laid In tbe home of Handford Morgan, a 
hanker, at Christmas' Eve. The son, James, 
Is Welcomed home by Morgan, and during 
the course of their conversation the -lather 
learns that the son is' accused of criminal 
business transactions, and has confessed 
to bis accuser. But It develops that 
James has. sacrificed bis honor <o 
save tbe woman he formerly loved, but who 
-Is qowthe wife of tbe man who really com- 
muted the crime. Morgan is at first furious 
at the thought of the threatened stain unou 
his good name, but eventually the nobility 
of bis son's action forces itself upon him, 
and be enthusiastically approves James' 
course, takes him once more to bla heart, 
and promises his aid In attempting to free 
him. The work was well written and In-

Huntington's playing holding close attention 
and deserving warm commendation, and the 
little olay proving a worthy offering. Joseph 
Ynrrick and bla "Magic Kettle" are held 
over for another week, wblcb speaks well 
for the atrengtb of this act, which Is very 
far from the ordinary, aqd most interesting 
and mystifying throughout. Tbe St. Onge 
Brothers did some remarkably dexterous 
fents on cycles, and were deserving of tbe 
most fervidly expressed favor, for their act 
proved of unusual merit from start to fin- 
ish. Thcs Westmnu and Lily Wren, pre- 
senting '-'In nnylh.' Time," brought them- 
selves Into pleasing prominence by some ex- 
cellent work, ana were responsible for 
decided pleasure during thslr time on view.

WHh the closing of the Eelssco Theatre 
Saturday night, June '4, when flenrletts 
C'roibisa gave her anal performance for 
this season of David Belasco's "Sweet Kitty 
Bellalres," Mr. llelasco completed the sei- 
ond year's history of bis artistic theatrical 
hbtne in Forty-second Street. It has been 
for him a genson of much achievement and 
much significance. What be has' accom- 
plished is mote or less fainlllar to oil who 
follow theatrical affairs, but lis present year 

falhs particular interest abd meaning trou 
be fact that Its high records of success have 
been Won at a time when marly other mana- 
gers, with other stars and plays, have heca 
complaining of the depressed state of the- 
atrical conditions. The explanation Is not 
hara to tlrtd. Mr. Dejasco has provided strong 

Slays, mounted with a rlchnes of art thut 
as not lieeri excelled. More than this he 
possesses in Mrs. Leslie Carter one of the 
greatest stars on the English speaking stage. 
u star who, with Blanche Bates and David 
Wnrdeld, forth a trilogy that, in (belr popu- 
lar aqd artistic values, It would be difficult 
to excel. The critics have accepted his ploys 
as being of the highest literary and popular 

' In view of these facts, a brief review of 
the various Belasco eoterprlses Is of Inter- 
est. The Belasco 'Theatre opened lis season 
Wednesday evening, Sept. lt«, when Blanche 
Rate's and the Bel'SBCo-Long Japanese plov, 
"The Dailitig ot the Gods)" resumed their 
remarkable run, not censing until this drama, 
hod completed a full twelvemonth on the 
home Htage. The total 'number of perform- 
ances at That time was 344, and throughout 
this long season the Gouse record was obe of 
capacity. Mrs. Leslie. Carter's brief season 
of three weeks followed, again demonstrat- 
ing the [lower of this actress to thrill plov- 
goer.v ana critics alike. The Hi'frt week of her 
Season was devoted to a revival of David 
Beicuco'a verslloo of '"Hata ;" the second week 
Was given over to bis play, "Dii Barry ;" the 
third week was divided between' the two. 
Broadway once more felt the lire of enthu- 
siasm Which Mrs." Carter's coming always 
arouses In New Vork, and again the mag- 

etlsa, the power nnd beautv of l 

elformanees attracted 

er hoine. theatre dilrl 
one nights of her sily. 

'Meantime, events iir.^irtnnt to the suc- 
cess of tlie Belasco year had transpired in 
Waslilngtpb. lie had .effected an arrange- 
ment Whereby Henrietta CroHmqn was to ap- 
pear-In the title nnrt ot his new play, a 
strong drama of old Bath, entitled "Sweet 
Kitty fiellalts." m the face ot' unloosed 
for and almost insurmountable obstacles, 
the first product luii of thU new work took 
place lu Washington, oh Wednesday evening, 
Nov. 'J5, and uf lor finishing the week in that 
city and playing a week at the Marvloml 
Theatre, In Baltimore, followed Mrs. Leslie 
Carter at tlie Belasco Theatre on Wednes- 
day; Dec. ft. The result was that New Vofk 
Witnessed another Belasco triumph. Tbe 
press were unanimous In prolse'o'f "Sweet 
Kitty Bellalrs" and In extolling tbe art 
of the production and the excellence of the 
cast In such manner as to show that tbls 
piayright-monoger was still a potent factor 
among producers. The record of Mrs. lies- 
lie Carter's "Du Barry" pnd' of "The Darl- 
in- of the Gods promised to be Worthily 
equalled la their successor. Throughout tbe 
succeeding months ''Sweet Kitty Bellalrs" 
has crowded the theatre an did the other 
Belasco plays, And tbe fact that It receot- 
ly passed Its two hujudredth performance is 
proof of Its pronounced success. 

The coming of "Sweet Kitty Bellalrs" lo 


.. Av'd"- 
Mrs. Carter's tour has taken her to every 
city of importance In ' the country. Including 
nine weeks, when tbls beauflful production, 
In all its thoroughness. Was show, 11 to the 
One night standi). She Is now ending her 
record with a tour of the West. Ere 
her season closes, on Aug. 1, she will have 
traveled more thuri thirty thousand miles, 
and It Is an Interesting record that this 
star has attracted to the box office more 
than a round million ot dollars during the 
leas than three seasons that she has been 
playing "Dii Barry." 

Blanche Bates' successes, In "The Dar- 
ling of the GOds," are likewise' notable. For 
seven weeks In Boston, eight Weeks In Chi- 
cago, and a week In each ot Ave other cities, 
she played to- the literal capacity of the the- 
atres, while the drama Itself was spoken of 
as another high example of Belascoan urt. 
It Is well worth noting that Miss Bates and 
her play have been chosen as a chief dra- 
matic feature of the St. Louis Exposition, 
where, for four months, beginning late In 
July, at the Imperial Theatre, she will show 
to the international gatherings In the West- 
ern city tbe drama that Is considered repre- 
sentative ot the high point that haB been 
reached la stage works In America.' 

"Tbe Darling of the Gods" has bad 
a still further proof of Its International 
appeal, for last December H. Beerbobm 
Tree produced It ot His Majesty's Theatre, 
In London. Later he produced It with a spe- 
cial company In Australia, and sent a third 
special company on tour through the British 
provinces. In London, as In New York, It 
was acclaimed a triumph, and Mr. Belasco 
found his Work once more As highly praised 
In the Uuropean capitals as. at home. 

Of Mr. Belasco's future plans, It Is known 
that Miss Crosman, In "Sweet Kitty Bel- 
lalrs," will reopen bla theatre'tn September. 
Mrs. Leslie Carter. will tie seen during tin- 
season In a new play, as will also Mr. war- 
field .who, daring the year Just closed, fin- 
ished his third successful season -In "The 
Auctioneer." Mr. Belasco's new blny of next 
season will be that In which Mrs. Carter 
will be seen.
